The 12 Foundation Stones
The 12 Essential Elements of the Gospel
The whole of the gospel of Jesus Christ can be comprehended in the 12 essential Elements of the Gospel. They are the 12 Foundation Stones upon which we build a strong faith in Jesus Christ. They are the spiritual foundation of your faith. (1 Corinthians 3:10-11)
You need a basis of knowledge to be established in the faith and to assist you to serve God in the name of Jesus Christ. You need a basis of knowledge to build faith in the image of Jesus Christ and to express Him. The 12 Elements of the Gospel is that basis. They are the essentials of the faith. They are the principles of the doctrine of Christ (Hebrews 6:1)
God Wants to Put Your Mind in a New Frame of Thinking
Knowledge is to faith as pruning is to a tree. Like the pruning of a tree, your cycles of growth must begin. The things you nurtured in Satan's kingdom have to be removed. God removes you from Satan's kingdom and then removes Satan's kingdom from you. Whether you know it or not, Satan's knowledge had a profound influence over your perception of life. You began to weigh reality by his lies.
It is the mind and will of God to restore the church to the understanding of the exact knowledge of each of the 12 essential Elements of the Gospel. I remember writing these Elements on a chalk board in a school where I worked as a janitor in the mid 1970s. I was in an American Literature classroom when I began to use the chalkboard to work out the Elements. I was intrigued at how God designed them and knew that there had to be a central Element that tied them all together. That is the Element Grace.
I felt a strong presence of God as He began to develop the understanding of the Elements in my mind. He made me to know both the binary and proclitic relationship of the Elements and made me to understand why they are defined as a synergistic work that can only be observed in the eco system of His truth.If you are serious about your faith then it is vital that you learn all you can about God's purpose for each of the 12 Foundation Stones, which are the 12 Elements of the Gospel.

Faith is the Second Foundation Stone - Faith is an Essential Element of the Gospel
Grace is the first of the 12 Foundation Stones and faith is the second stone. God wants us to build a strong faith with the stones of His knowledge. They are the practice of our faith. But it is difficult to practice faith unless we first are able to define what faith is.
Definition of faith: To Acknowledge, mold, with, and submit to. (Definition by Apostle Eric vonAnderseck)
Many times a person may say that they believe in God, but they only acknowledge that He exists. The faith the Bible talks about requires man to mold his affections with and submit to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. If Jesus Christ died for the sins of the whole world, why isn't the whole world saved? Because faith is required of us in order to be saved! This is why Jesus said, "Have faith in God," (Mk.11:22).
Most people define ‘faith’ as simply believing that God exists. But we read in the scriptures that those who profess faith in God need to do more than just believe that God exists. Heb.11:6 reads, "Without faith it is impossible to please God."
God wants us to please Him through faith. The apostle James taught that "FAITH without WORKS (of demonstration) is dead," Jas.2:26. This scripture lets us know that the kind of faith that pleases God is accompanied by the works which please God. Faith is not only demonstrated by what we say, but by what we DO.
Anyone can say they believe in God; anyone can say they have faith in God, but faith that is not expressed is dead faith (which cannot bring forth the activity that pleases God). Just knowing that faith in God is necessary in order to be saved, and knowing what Jesus said about faith, and realizing that faith in God needs to be expressed by the works which please God does not tell us WHAT faith is and HOW to demonstrate it.
